    Prestige tour 660

    I fashioned a new “collar” with marine epoxy. Then just wrapped a leather grip up over like a modern Head grip.

    And I don’t understand people who buy old quality solid wood antique furniture. Why not just get laminated stuff from Ikea?

    Looks like we have them incoming north of the border in Canada.

    Asics Gel Resolution 8

    Kind of wondering if the Resolution 8 is going to be in any way like the Barricade 7 Novak used to wear. The 7 is my all time favourite shoe and i am quite dismayed at its demise.

    2 new Head grail acquisitions

    Currently some poly by Artemik in two of them. Tourna Pro Poly in a couple. Isospeed Cream in another. I’m not too fussy.

    I string my 3 Rad Tour 630/Trisys at and 2 Rad Tour 630 Twin Tube at 49lbs. They feel great.

    Lots of fans of classic 70s, 80s and 90s equipment here. Maybe not your specific wheelhouse, but, plenty of threads.

    I could be wrong and it’s actually toothpaste.

    Old dried out Blu-Tac poster putty it would seem.

    How is it that the Elektra Pro has white grommets rather than the dark green? Maybe replaced with grommets from an Elite Pro?

    With so many retail versions of the racquet available on the auction site I don’t see the point of getting pro stock if you’re just curious what the fuss is about. Buy yourself a Radical Tour 630 either Bumblebee, Zebra or Candycane and give that a whirl first. Bumblebee will be closest...

    Replacement suggestion for Head Prestige Tour Mid?

    I would have been fine 20 years ago probably. But the plastic they used on those suspension collars just rots out.

    Replacement suggestion for Head Prestige Tour Mid?

    The collar is more than likely toast. It’s just going to crumble. What i did with mine is form a new collar out of marine epoxy. Wrapped the leather grip all the way up like on modern racquets. Done.

    We are pretty lucky to live in Montreal with regards to tennis. I'd never be able to play if i lived in Toronto.

    Happy 30th Anniversary HEAD Prestige On Tour Since 1986

    My local shop should be getting the new Dunlops. I should give it a demo.

    That's no IG Prestige Pro. Pro stock Prestige Mid with custom drill pattern.

    Federer’s actual Frame specs!

    Here’s the thing: people don’t know what they don’t know. I’ll call it the Dunlop-Kruger effect. ;) For example: I played some rec doubles a couple of weeks ago. One player had broken the strings on both of his Youtek Radical Pros. One of the other players handed him a random Walmart esque...

    Buying First Racquet - Trouble with Weight

    You can get used to anything. If she had started with a 300g to begin with, a 330g would seem heavy. And so on and so forth. Once you both start getting better and playing with better and better players, you will wish that you had started with a racquet with some proper mass.

    2018 ATP Finals Final: (1.) Novak Djokovic vs. (3.) Alexander Zverev

    Did anyone catch what Robbie Koenig blurted out at 5-3 15-0 in the second? I rewound it five times and was convinced it was “THAT’S A LINDA RONSTADT!” Or was it “That’s a Lendl wrong step!”

    Balance is a little different. The Bee is a bit more head heavy and it’s also a smidge stiffer than a PT630. I think it hits a heavier ball, personally.

    How good are Head MicroGEL Radical rackets?

    There are a ton of Zebra Radical MP on the auction site all the time. And prices seem lower than they were in the last couple years.

    I have two Bumblebees strung with Tourna Premium Poly at 49 lbs and the control and spin is outstanding. I had been playing gut mains poly crosses and while the feel was sweeter, i am playing better with the full poly. Have two Zebras in for the same stringing so will see about that very soon.
